Be the A-lister you’ve always believed you were with M-Net Movies


Okay, hands up. How many of you pretend to be an actor, a singer or both in the comforts of your car, your shower or your home? Your home becomes your set location, your car becomes your stage and it’s there that you act out one of your favourite movie scenes or belt out your best version of your ultimate song. I have, you can see it here (disclaimer, my singing isn’t grand), but you can watch it anyway. I also sometimes catch myself re-enacting a scene from a movie or a series because I’m just that amazing. There’s a point to all of this, I promise…

M-Net Movies is giving its viewers the opportunity of a lifetime: to ‘Star in your own Greatest Movie Ever Made’ and maybe win a trip to the mecca of moviemaking i.e. Hollywood!!! The movies stable on DStv has created this platform for aspiring A-listers to get their big break and big wanderlust adventure at the same time. All you need to do is this:

  • Re-enact a scene from a movie now showing on one of the movie channels (M-Net Movies Premiere (Channel 104); M-Net Movies Smile (Channel 105); M-Net Movies Action + (Channel 106), M-Net Movies Showcase (Channel 107); M-Net Movies Action (Channel 110); M-Net Movies All Stars (Channel 111) and M-Net Movies Zone (Channel 139)
  • Upload your video to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #MMGreatest
  • To validate your entry, you must go to to fill out the entry form too.

The competition will run through to the 20th of August and thereafter the fun starts. 24 of the top entries will then be selected by a panel of experts. The public will then choose their top 12, who will be selected to star in a production by the highly acclaimed production company, Bomb Productions. Sidebar, this team is incredible guys and girls. They’re the brains behind shows like Isibaya and Jacob’s Cross, both of which are brilliant from production values and casting perspectives. So best you know you’re working with the crème de la crème. The script for this production will be written by Tebogo Malope, and the top 12 will co-star alongside acting greats Thapelo Mokoena, Thomas Gumede, Lalla Land’s Lalla Hirayama and Maps Maponyane when the shoot takes places on the 26th of September. #NOTKAK at all!!!

So the big question is, SHALL WE? I’m in… I know what scene will get me a couple of votes, but you’ll have to wait and see what it is. Which movie scene would you act out?

Big up to M-Net Movies. The channel will this weekend pay tribute to the late Paul Walker, who was tragically killed in a car accident at the weekend. Here’s the information about their plans for the 8th of December:

In loving memory of the action movie star, Paul Walker, who died in a fatal car crash last week, M-Net Movies Showcase has changed its schedule for Sunday, 8 December.

The Fast and the Furious will be screened on M-Net Movies Showcase, channel 108 on DStv, at 14:15, with 2 Fast 2 Furious, following at 16:05.

Says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard:  “The world has been shocked by the sudden loss of this beloved action movie star and with this last-minute scheduling change, M-Net Movies Showcase is paying tribute to the man who brought magic to our screens.”

At the time of his death Paul was shooting scenes for the new upcoming “Fast & Furious 7″ film, which was due to be released in July 2014.
